Three victories. 

All Time. 

In Boston. 

That's a lot of losses, and an uphill battle for the Bolts against the Beast-of-the-East Bruins.  Mike McKenna gets the start in the crease for the Lightning against Manny Fernandez for the B's.  Here are the current projected lines for both teams:

P.J. Axelsson - Marc Savard - Blake Wheeler

Prospal-Stamkos-Bochenski

There's a conversation going on elsewhere on the interwebs that with the projected lineup above, Steven Stamkos is being "punished" for his game slipping the last few games.  The subtext is that to play with dynamic wing and former Hart Trophy winner St. Louis, you gotta bring your A game...  And Stamkos hasn't of late.

Also of note, Matt Smaby will be a game-time decision to play on D...

This is an open comment thread about the game and also an opportunity to send out quick messages about subjects related to hockey, the team, sports in general...
